Quadrifoglio is the performance division of Alfa Romeo, and the vehicles which bear the name represent the proud racing heritage of this legendary Italian manufacturer. Their name comes from the Italian word for a four-leaf clover, and on the roads of Barrington or Itasca, you can recognize an Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio model by the bright green four-leaf clover badging located on side of the vehicle, behind the front wheels.

The models in this lineup are comparable to the vehicles in the BMW M division or the Mercedes-Benz AMG division, but they offer performance, charm, and personality that only Alfa Romeo could deliver.
